Telly Savalas vs. Bob Hope: Very Different From Our Old Routine

Telly Savalas on one of Bob Hope’s specials from 1976, first exchanging banter, then singing a duet, if you can believe it.

I find it amusing that apparently whatever version of teleprompter they’re using must have been down at the stage level, since as they’re exchanging jokes they’re both looking down.

Me, Myself and Mr. Microphone

This is a long distance dedication to all of you young bastards who never understood why I would say “Hey good lookin’, we’ll be back to pick you up later!” into random microphones.

And let’s cogitate upon that for the briefest of moments. You are “good lookin'” but not good enough to actually stop the vehicle and pick the “you” in question up immediately. You are “good lookin'” enough for later, however. And is the “you” in question supposed to simply wait there–and if so, for how long?

Or perhaps the car simply has no brakes. We may never know.

If anyone asks me what a “long distance dedication” is, there will be death.

Bob and Doug’s Two-Four Anniversary

I had no idea this had happened until Ken just sent me this, but that figures: it was broadcast this year in Canada, it’s now available on DVD in Canada and I myself am not in Canada. So.

Come on, our friends to the North. Bob and Doug are an international treasure that must be shared. Do a complete Region 1 release at least. I mean, seriously.
